Joanne Harris and The Fallacy of “Reader Entitlement”

"Readers note the messy incidents and problematic content so they can make informed consumer decisions in the future, and they warn their friends about notably dangerous examples so they can protect themselves if need be. We shouldn’t have to do this, but we do and we move on. We treasure the relationships we have with authors, many of whom we consider good friends, and we share our passions in an enthused but reasonable manner. There are outliers, and unfortunately always will be. The route is precarious, but we navigate it. Our weariness is not entitlement – it’s experience."
